BeachBoy and I celebrated our 5th anniversary on September 30th! What a blessed woman I am. While I’m quickly outliving my “newlywed” status, I feel just as tickled and glowy as I did on day one. He’s a keeper for sure!
We’re saving up BeachBoy’s vacation time for Christmas, so we decided to stick close to home instead of taking the “Big Trip” we’d originally been planning for this year. I planned a last minute surprise getaway weekend instead.
Rather than throw a bunch of words at you, I’ll give you what you really want….PICTURES!! You are going to drool all over the cottage we rented. I sure did! Go grab a towel before you scroll down, sugar.
We started our weekend with a zipline canopy tour and ropes course in South Carolina, which you can read more about here. The rest of the weekend was spent roaming through the mountains, visiting farms, and exploring the vineyard where our cottage was located.
OK, brace yourself for the bathroom, girls. No, really.
a few more, just for fun…
Here are a few of the relaxing adventures we shared.
Those are boiled peanuts….a delicacy I’d never heard of before moving to the south.
Now, I have to tell you something. Our cottage was not the only one at the vineyard. In fact, it was the smallest of three stunning cottages. And, I just so happen to have pictures of the other two. They are lighter and brighter than our woodsy cottage. I promise to post them soon, so be sure to keep an eye out. You DON’T want to miss seeing them. For me, it was love at first sight.
